Logging-inYou need to login to the site in order to conduct actions under the privileges of your username, and to be able to claim control (if you have the permissions), and point reward, over the content you submit.

PointsEvery logged-in member can gain points as they contribute to our community, in ways like…
- Posting on the forums
- Contributing content to the site, such as images of the day
As you gain points, you can spend them on various fun or useful things, such as buying your own email account.
The points system extends further than this though, as members have the ability to give each-other points via gift-points. Gift-points are given out to all our members at a rate of 1 per day for every day they are a member but are useless until they are given to people who you feel have done you or the community a good service. When they are given to someone they show up on their personal points page, and they count towards their point total (which they can use to buy things with). For example, somebody might release some works to the community and then members might give them a whole load of points for it, given them credit for their work.
Occasionally upon giving a gift, you will be awarded points yourself, as a random award for your consideration.
Members of staff have the ability to give any number of points they like to people, including huge numbers, or even negative numbers. Please the staff and you could be awarded massively in points; abuse our systems and you could be penalised.
Please have fun with the system and use your gift-points well.
The Point StoreThe Point Store contains all the items you can buy using your points. You can then select some and buy them.
The items that are purchasable may include:
- Flagrant text messages. These are messages displayed in a prominent position on the website. All flagrant messages are placed in a queue and activated manually (and thus subject to moderation).
- Banner advertisements, and upgrades. Through this you may advertise something of your own that ordinarily the staff would not allocate advertising space for.
- E-mail addresses. You may be able to purchase forwarding and POP3 e-mail addresses
